Police in Nagoya have arrested an unemployed man of no fixed address on suspicion of murder after he fatally stabbed a man in a manga/internet cafe on Thursday night.

According to police, the incident occurred at around 8:30 p.m. at the cafe on the 9th floor of a building in an entertainment district in Naka Ward, Fuji TV reported. Police received a call from a cafe employee, reporting that a man had stabbed a customer.

Police rushed to the scene and apprehended the suspect, Fumihiro Inada, who was wielding a fruit knife. A 35-year-old company employee, who was stabbed in the chest, neck and face, was taken to hospital where he died about one hour later.

Police quoted Inada as saying he wanted to die but couldn’t kill himself, so he got mad and decided to kill someone else at random instead. He told police he did not know the victim.

The very sad and very scary thing is that under questioning the guy is probably being completely honest with the police.

"he wanted to die but couldn’t kill himself, so he got mad and decided to kill someone else at random instead " Looks like its time to have these honest-loons take a survey, so they can be put in the N.E.M.A. camps.

You can't even be safe in a manga cafe for crying out loud. A sign of the times.

A coward who deserves nothing but a short drop.

Coward, and he deserves a cowards death.

Dont grant him his wish. Let him die alone and cold in his cell after a long life of pain and regret.

So let me get this straight, he had the gravels to stab a random innocent person to death, but not the pebbles to end his own life? Wow! Crazy people are everywhere. And summer isn't even here yet! Condolences to the victim and his family.

The victim was married and had small children. Their lives are ruined. There is nothing "amusing" at any level about this.

Actually, considering what kind of stories Manga have, and considering SOME people are kind of obsessive about it, this is one of the places I would expect someone to SNAP.

Still, FF sake!
